The weather forecast's good so why not rustle up some of Delia's pukka picnic food and head for the great outdoors?
These wonderful feuilletes would make an impressive starter for a summer gathering and, again, combine asparagus with melting cheese - one of food's most perfect combinations.
This can be made with a combination of leftover turkey or chicken and pieces of cheese. You could also add some chopped pieces of ham if there is some left over. Having said that, I think this tastes so good that it is worth cooking some chicken spec
These make delicious party snacks and go well with chutney recipes. They can be frozen before cooking and then glazed and cooked from frozen for about 30-35 minutes.
Children, in particular, seem to enjoy fried chicken and at least if it's home-made, you know what's in it! This easy recipe is bound to become a family favourite.
A less frugal version of this can be made for a special occasion by substituting 1/2 pint (275ml) cream for the milk.
This has a lovely Mediterranean flavour and tastes very good eaten out of doors on a hot summer's day.
This is unbelievably easy if you buy ready-cooked chicken. Thinking ahead, too, it's also a great recipe for leftover turkey on Boxing Day.
Maybe the speediest dessert ever, this luscious tart combines hedgerow berries and Bramley apples in a classic pairing that will have you asking for second helpings!
Parmesan cheese pastry, with a filling of Gruyere and onions makes a tart perfect for lunch, a light supper or a picnic.
A new take on a retro classic, this gorgeous tart is full of flavour, with onions, Parmesan cheese and crème fraiche providing plenty of creaminess.
